At CleanSlateNow Action, our mission is, in part, to rid politics of the corrupting influence of special interest money, so candidates who take 100% of their money from individuals -- as opposed to taking Political Action Committee (PAC), Small Donor Committee (SDC), corporate, and other special interest money -- would seem to be aligned with our values.  Please recognize candidates who take the courageous and challenging step of turning down special interest money and encourage them to keep prioritizing the public interest.
